Stop me if you heard that one before.... well, at least it'll give the Windows 7 phone some immediate market share, right? ;)

They've had them for months, hardly news. It's just the lower down employees are getting them now.

If you've gotten emails from any Microsofties lately, they have:

I wonder what percentage of Microsoft employees currently use Windows Mobile, most of these are defiantly gonna end up on eBay, nothing but a stunt to try and get some market share.

It's good in a sense that you know an email reply is short because it's off a mobile.

Bad because it's just a bragging thing.

Can people trade those for a Kin? It was a failure but it sure looked better than the Windows Phone 7...

The "Sent from my Windows Phone" isn't proof that someone's using WP7. Windows Mobile 6.5 (and possibly earlier?) includes this in Outlook by default too.

Don't think so. All my WinMo phones (Kaiser, Imagio, HD2) always had a blank signature field.

It was Apple who started the whole "Sent from my XXXX" thing...

Oh might as well: Sent from my Dell Vostro 1700

What's with all of the Windows Phone 7 hate? You know Apple gave all of their employees iPhones when it first came out, too.

The newer Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.5 phones do include that and I'm equally against it.

Hmm, guess it was just the ROM that removed it or something. I remember on my Imagio it was "Sent from my Verizon Phone," but neither of my other 2 phones came with it.

And you broke the "sent from" chain! How could you :cry:

Seems you're right! Quick google search found posts from as early as Jan 2007 on the BB forums.
